How the Concept was born
Accessing various online tools that are not contextualized or focused to specific project/innovation types or the specific challenges associated with innovating within a corporate environment. Innovation portal was created in response to our client's request for ongoing access to our tools after an accelerator project or training ended. They love what we do and learn a lot from our services but struggle to: adapt the tools they have learnt to new projects with different needs, and align other teams to this new way of work and create a common language for effective coordination and decision making which is so critical to achieve speed to market. Innovation is not a "one size fits all" approach as no two projects are the same. There needs to be a flexible approach to how and when the different tools/frameworks are applied, which is difficult to do when you are first learning to innovate. For teams to continue to develop their innovation capabilities beyond a single accelerator project or training workshop, they need ongoing support to 'learn by doing'.
